JULIE SWAIL

Water Polo

1995 - Muir - Economics

 

An All-American water polo player and member of two national championship teams at UCSD, Swail was captain of the silver medal-winning United States Women’s Water Polo team at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.

Since retiring from international water polo, she’s spent time in the coaching ranks (she was head women’s water polo coach at both Rio Hondo JC and UC Irvine) but is now focused on another Olympics in a second sport—triathlon.

 

After winning both the Age Group National Championships and Amateur World Championships and being named the top amateur female triathlete in the U.S. in 2002, she turned pro and began working towards qualifying for the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.

 

She’s well on her way, having finished eighth at the August Pan Am Games and earning enough points to qualify for the Olympic Trials. Her short term priority is the U.S. Pro Nationals, Nov. 1, in San Francisco where she will attempt to win one of three American berths in the December World Championships in New Zealand. The Olympic Trials are April-June, 2003. She is set to attend the Games already as a television color commentator for NBC at the water polo venue.
